This is a sponsored post on behalf of the Amazon Original Kids series, Niko and the Sword of Light but all opinions are 100% my own.
My five year old is a force to be reckoned with. She is the sweetest thing, with big blue eyes and blonde hair, has the sweetest personality and loves to play dress up and oh yeah, she never sits still and runs the show in our house. As the youngest of five she is used to keeping up with the big kids and she is always up for an adventure! She turns on the charm and has her siblings wrapped around her little finger and gets them to join in as well. I recently made her this easy DIY No Sew Tulle Tutu and she has been wearing it non stop, pretending to be a princess off on all of her adventures, both real and imaginary. Who says that princesses have to sit around quietly?
Imagine how excited she was when we got a chance to check out the new Amazon Original Kids series, Niko and the Sword of Light, which debuts on Prime Video, Friday, July 21, 2017. Niko and the Sword of Light features 10 year old Niko who is guided on his adventures by the princess Lyra. The new Emmy-winning fantasy adventure series takes young viewers to a magical land where a lone champion battles the darkness with his magic sword as he journeys to the Cursed Volcano to free his people and return the world to the light.
She watched the first show, put on her tutu and headed outside to re-enact the adventure! This DIY No Sew Tulle Tutu with magic wand and matching hair tie is perfect for any adventure your princess heads out on, and it is so simple to make–truthfully my girls helped me make it and it took us less than 30 minutes start to finish.
4 rolls of 6 inch tulle–my daughter chose to use four different colors so we got pink, purple, pink glitter and purple glitter but you can use any colors that work for you. (Note: the glitter tulle can be messy and the glitter tends to come off)
1/2 inch thick ribbon–cut long enough so that you have enough ribbon to go around your child’s waist with some left over to make a bow in the back to tie.
Wand and hair tie
2 foam wands
elastic hair tie
For the Tutu
Cut the tulle into long pieces, about a yard apiece.( Note: you will be folding the tulle in half so make sure to leave it long enough to have some length to it. I just measured from my daughters hip to her knee and doubled it.)
Fold the tulle in half and make a loop at the top, and knot it around the ribbon by pulling the tail end of the tulle through the loop.
Continue looping until desired length and thickness. The closer you make your knots the puffier the tulle skirt will be.
I found it easiest to tie the ribbon around the back of the chair and attach the tulle that way.
For the wand and hair tie
Cut thin ribbon about a foot long
Pull stick off one of the foam wands, glue the ribbons to one side and then glue the second foam wand to the first so that the ribbons are in the middle. Allow the ribbons to stream down.
Tie extra ribbons on the hair tie.
